Dual Credit Community College Classes – all online, but live, caring teachers who understand homeschoolers!

Learn Beyond The Book is proud to partner with local community colleges and their professors to provide support to high schoolers who are taking their first college classes. We have multiple classes available (below) and work with multiple colleges. Details on the colleges and their process for dual enrollment will be provided to registered students. For some courses, the professor is also the teacher at Learn Beyond The Book and for other classes, our teacher works with the professors at the college. The dual credit classes (sometimes called companion courses) at Learn Beyond The Book do not exceed 12 students and will be offered online so that all students can access the support. The community college courses will also be online courses, so you could enroll from anywhere. The community college course is free and our students get a seat saved for them (max of 12 students per class at the moment). The dual credit companion course at Learn Beyond The Book will have a fee; think of it as small-group tutoring through the college course, with discussions, explanations, and assistance on assignments to help make the college class come to life.

Below is the list of courses that we plan to offer every year and a short description of what each class would count for on the IGETC and for High School credits. If a class counts for IGETC, it will also be counted towards AA graduation requirements General Ed as well as the CSU GE Breadth Certification Plan. Please contact us with any questions at learnbeyondthebook@gmail.com

If a student wants to register for these companion courses, they need to complete an assessment to make sure they are ready for a college course in terms of writing and comprehension. The first 2 weeks of the class we will also be evaluating how they’re doing and let parents know if the class should be dropped before the drop date passes if they seem to be having too hard of a time in the college class. Enrollment in the companion courses never guarantees a good grade; students are still ultimately responsible for submitting assignments, discussions, and quizzes online in the college Canvas system, but they will have support and help through the courses and our teachers help to bring online college classes to life.

** If a student already completed community college courses before, they most likely don’t need to do the assessment. Please email learnbeyondthebook@gmail.com with their unofficial college transcript if this is the case. **

Once the assessment is completed, we will be in contact to provide you with details to enroll. As you wait for the assessment to be looked at, start by applying to the college listed with each class that your student plans to enroll in.
